Well! I'm broke.
Okay, not entirely. But I did buy a zillion things today at the market. It's kinda like the Saturday market, only WAYHAY better. And everything is so much cheaper, even with conversion. And it has more you can buy. It was so amazing. It was on the streets, tucked in between these apartments that sit on restaurants and shops. The buildings seemed to never end, it looked like an old Hollywood set. It was enchanting. Everyone was so friendly (And I'm just CERTAIN that it wasn't because I was shelling out Euro's for their stuff...no...they just liked me).
I'm a liar.
I'd die first.
I'd literally rather be eaten BY an octopus, than eat one myself.
So yes, that was my day. Now we're back at the apartment, resting. And though my womb is as empty as my box of Dots, I am feeling just as worn out as Brenda is, who's womb is as filled as a proper RCC woman's should be. HERE! HERE!
Now, I shall tell you of some fun facts about Holland:
No one wears helmets. Um hello, that would make them look SO uncool. Also they are nothing like the idiot Portland bikers who are rude and aggressive and assume everyone will look out for them, when in fact very very very few do. Bikers have the right away here, so cars are USED to looking out for them, but they will still be safe, they wont ring their bells a trillion times screaming "LEFT!" as they whiz past you.
Also! The light switches here are different. I don't know how to describe them. They're just different.
As are the toilets. No. No bidet. But instead of the whole drain in the bowl being in the middle, it's actually at the very front. It's odd. And you press this button thing, and once you let go, it stops flushing, so you have to hold it till you feel it's been completely flushed! Amazing. Brenda and Aaron's toilet have two buttons. One for #1. One for #2.
WOW FUN FACT!
The refrigerators aren't meant to makes things cold cold, just keep them cool. Hmmm....
People go shopping once every two or three days, because they dont have space, and they all ride bikes so they can't carry much at a time.
Well, I'm off to the grocery store.
Be good. Work hard. Miss me.
